Drawing ges­tures of your char­ac­ter helps to un­der­stand their per­son­al­ity. This chap’s a jazz mu­si­cian, so I’m drawing him with a gui­tar and other in­stru­ments. He’s also a ro­man­tic, and a bit of a flirt. So to get this mes­sage across to my au­di­ence I need to ex­ag­ger­ate his body ges­tures and fa­cial ex­pres­sions.

Ap­ply flat colours

Af­ter play­ing with ges­tures, I put some flat colours on the char­ac­ter. Flat colours help me to get a clearer idea of how he might look in the film. I ex­per­i­ment with a lot of dif­fer­ent blues for his clothes, but be­cause he’s from the 1940s, I pick the one that has more of a vin­tage feel to it.
